It’s Our Time to Shine – Celebrating Strong Support
Posted by Kayla Peck Mar 3, 2013 awards, mentors, Partnership, strong awards
It takes a lot of hands to help us provide a high-quality program for girls that successfully conveys the stories of women throughout the world, and develops the skills needed to become leaders of their generation.
Without a doubt, the strongest supporters are our college mentors that each spend over 150 hours over the year serving girls in neighborhoods surrounding their college campuses. In order to recognize the accomplishments of these amazing women, SWSG holds our annual celebration ceremony, Strong Awards. And because it truly does take a community to create social change, we have some wonderful partnerships that have helped us to empower our college women, and subsequently, our girls.
We’d like to extend an extra thank you to those strong partnerships:
- Alexander, Aronson, Finning & Co.
- Ansaldo STS
- Boston Globe
- Hill Holliday
- Lincoln Property Company
- Natixis Global Asset Management
- OC & C Strategy Consultant
- Predictive Synergistic Systems
- State Street Corporation
- Simmons College
As one girl mentioned to her mentor during programming, “It’s our time to shine,” and we’re so thankful for the community of supporters who help make that possible.
